Title: Four Faces

Medium: Acrylic and bronze on canvas

Size: 20” x 24”

This is a family portrait, led by the shape of a mother who contains the faces of her three children, enmeshed in co-creating a life-giving abstraction. Engaging with the harsh angles of the world, the elemental metal is offered in contrast to the soft colours: art as alchemy, a site of treatment and knowledge beyond language.

Title: My Lady

Medium: Acrylic on canvas, framed

Size: 24”x40”

This is an existential self-portrait, wherein transparent layers express a life lived from multiple perspectives and experiences. In combination they compose a spirit that flows like a series of diaphanous veils, undoing any singular or fixed identity; aligning instead to create a figure that stays curious, desirous and elegant, despite life’s harsh edges.
